MLF are delighted to present award-winning Canadian author, and international bestseller Margaret Atwood. Margaret has written more than 40 books of fiction including The Handmaid’s Tale, Cat’s Eye, The Blind Assassin and the MaddAddam trilogy. She will be discussing her forthcoming novel The Heart Goes Last – an immensely funny and disturbing satire set in a near future where the lawful are locked up and the lawless roam free.

Young, poverty-stricken lovers Charmaine and Stan sign up for a social experiment but the promise of a suburban paradise soon turns into a nightmare of conformity, mistrust, guilt and sexual desire. Come and see why the Sunday Times described Margaret as ‘the outstanding novelist of our age’. Chaired by broadcaster and critic Erica Wagner.
